misleading statements. "time" magazine story this week runs down statements by both campaigns that are either false or outright propaganda. so for the democrats to call mitt romney a liar is foolish and destructive to their guy, president obama, because the obama campaign has made just as many false and misleading statements as the romney campaign has. beyond that, there is the usual hysteria from ranked idealogues. racial hustler michael eric dyson has injected color into the debate. explaining why president obama could not speak candidly. >> lest we forget this and pretend that doesn't make a difference the specter hanging over his neck that i can't come off as too vigorous because then it looks like i'm an angry black man and because of the angry black man phenomena barack obama engaged man -- here is the reality, obama doesn't have the latitude that white guys who speak with vigor do. >> bill: here's the reality, mr. dyson, you simply cannot analyze anything, anything without injecting race, that's the reality. now, fair-minded americans know vicious garbage when they see and hear it ther

. president obama about a week ago came to new york city for the u.n. general assembly. he did meet with world leaders last year decided to meet this year with zero world leaders and jetted off to campaign. he should have met with benjamin netanyahu, he should have met with the president of egypt and talked to him about maintaining security there and keeping americans safe in egypt. the white house response was he has a telephone he can call the leaders. why doesn't he use the telephone to call the view and walked to whoppi goldberg over the phone and take that time and meet with benjamin netanyahu and the president in the middle he's, our embassy is on fire, our president times find for the view but not leaders. he has not met with his jobs council since january. he's blown off his jobs council his january. this is dereliction of duty. >> slacker in chief is your summation in the piece. you tell me there is more you'll be writing about. they'll check it out. >> thank you very much. bill: 111 minutes befor 111 minutes before the hour. the first presidential debate goes down in denver tonight.

survey, just out today, among likely voters, romney now leads obama 49-45. three weeks ago, pugh had the president on top 51-43. that's quite a turn around. it's due to the debate where 66% told pugh they say mitt romney won. just 20% believe mr. obama prevailed. rasmussen dale tracking poll today has the race tied among likely voters. 48% each. in iowa and colorado, the president is hanging tough. in iowa, it's obama 49, romney 47. colorado, obama 49, romney 48. both are dead heats within the margin of error. joining us from washington, democratic strategist marge mcclinton in for juan williams and mary katherine ham. the pugh number, 49-45 surprised me, mary katherine. same with you? >> i was a little surprised at how far it moved. i'm not surprised it's moving in mitt romney's favor. i mean, this was 70 million people watching and the guy who showed up, mitt romney showed up to do that job that night was the best he had ever looked and certainly obama, the worst he ever looked on a stage with someone else, i would say when we have seen him in the situations before. people tuned in

obama. this is the second or third gaffe just this week. we are talking about almost all of the increase on the backs of businesses. it is hard to understand how you create more jobs for this economy if you are putting or taking money out of the pockets of the businesses that create them. joe biden was saying we are proud of the fact we are socking it to the businesses and to the rich people. i find it somewhat offensive, actually. >> is there any way when you raise people's taxes by $1 trillion the middle class is unaffected? >>guest: it is interesting if you look at congressional budget office report and i seldom cite the c.b.o., they say that if you do the fiscal cliff and the huge tax increase next year we don't have less than percent unemployment, we go up to over 9 percent unemployment, a double dip recession. that is not moving failure, that is moving backward. >> today we learned the 2012 deficit had exceeded, now, $1.1 trillion. more than $1 trillion, four years in a row. >>guest: what a record. that means, and we have talked about this of with, four straight years of $1 trillio

-making coming out of the obama camp regarding president obama's debate performance last week that blamed everything from the altitude, to the moderator. over the weekend i saw reports that they were now blaming john kerry for doing a poor job as a stand in for governor romney during their mock debate sessions. look, it wasn't just a bad debate for president obama, it's been a bad four years. he just doesn't have the issues or the facts on his side. we have 23 million americans who are struggling for work, we have 47 million americans of record on food stamps. one in six americans living in poverty. this obama economy has not worked for people and we can't afford another four years like the last four. bill: you know what democrats are saying, they are saying that mitt romney was lying. that's the word they are using. james kleinsberg talked about. others talked about fabricating issues. what does the romney team say about those charges? >> i'll tell you, bill, this is a very petulant and unpresidential response from the obama campaign team. i tell you the big difference in that debate as
. this week is the big vice presidential debate. but next week, mr. romney and president obama will face off againing on long island and romney aides say there will be next week another policy speech, next one on the economy. >> shep: you were talking about policy. what is it that governor romney says he would do differently? >> well, there haven't been a lot of specifics. there are some differences, however. for instance, mr. romney has said he will move to impose sanctions on iraq -- iran with the international community much more aggressively, as well as additional pressure from the united states. he argues that he will enable the rebels in syria to arm themselves more effectively, to go up against the iran-backed regime of assad who has been crushing rebels and killing civilians. and mr. romney said he will link relations with egypt, now led by pot morsi of the muslim brotherhood, what has been described virulent anti-west and says our relationship will be based on trade, something mr. romney said should be much more aggressively policed and pursued, free trade and fairer trade with chin
of obama-care going into effect this week. what does that mean for you? it could mean a lot. for hospitals, too. remember this ... >> it's 3:00 a.m. and your children are safe asleep. who do you want answering the phone? martha: one of the most memorable ads of the last campaign. critics are saying the obama administration did get their 3:00 a.m. call and they flushed it. we'll talk to john bolton about this. bill: some say this is come dip downplaying expectations for tomorrow's debate. republicans saying mitt romney has to bring the athlete like he did against newt gingrich. >> i think of the four us, yes. >> that's inexcusable. the idea that i'm anti-immigrants is repulsive. don't use a term like that. i think you should awe apologize for it. having differences on opinions on issues does not justify labeling people with highly charged epithets.

foreign policy vision with president obama in the final debate in two weeks that will hit on these topics and more. >>shepard: thank you, mike, from washington, dc. the white house blasted governor romney's foreign policy speech before the g.o.p. presidential nominee took to the podium. in a statement, a spokesman for the president said and i quote, "we're not going to be lectured by someone who has been an unmitigated disaster on foreign policy every time he dipped his toe in the foreign policy waters." the statement conditions that the only person who offended europe more is probably chevy chase, part of his summer foreign tour which he criticized london's preparations for the olympic games. the president's campaign released an ad calling governor romney reckless on the international affairs. now, ed henry is in california for us this afternoon. ed, what is the story there? >>reporter: well, the bottom line, the obama campaign spokesman had a conference call reacting to governor romney's speech. he flatly said, bring it on. that was the direct quote. they feel like the president has a s
obama's performance tonight, people watch something. >> flat. >> floot. >> week. >> slow. >> passionless. >> unpassionate. >> i thought it was flat. >> off his game. >> what was it? do you think he wasn't prepared? do you think it's been four years? >> he seemed like he wasn't prepared and seemed like romney had done thinking about the issues and obama just working off the talking points. >> i heard what sean hannity said earlier talking about this being obama at his weakest. i've done these sessions before and i thought this is romney at his strength. what is your reaction? >> this is -- romney i think he had a lot of facts and laid out his five-point plan. it makes sense but he came across with compassion which i appreciated. >> i think romney had a lot of passion and facts but i think that president obama has been so protected. he's never had to defend these policies face-to-face. he doesn't have the facts and he is defenseless because everybody that kept questioners away weren't able to do that. >> we're going to close. you lean towards obama. you're listening to this? what advice do
: a top economics professor at princeton is now calling out president obama. for his comments at last week's debate and his common sense then, suggesting that governor romney's economic plan does not add up. here is what the president said. >> the fact is that if you are lowering the rates that we been described, governor, than it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it is arithmetic. megyn: now, this professor at princeton, upon whom the obama campaign has based its charge since then, they are citing this professor, harry rosen, to say that romney's plan is going to pinch the middle class -- he has come out and said, i have never said that and i do not believe that. joining me now is lou dobbs, host of "lou dobbs tonight" and a syndicated radio host. it's not often that you see a princeton guide defending a candidate, but he is saying that i am not saying, this will not pinch the middle class. why is that? be. lou: based on a set of assumptions,
obama, was on the show last week. the challenger, mitt romney has not been on the show. we have asked him to be on the show. we have -- any night, any time, short notice, whatever he wants, he can be on the show. he's got 39 days. now, i don't want to persuade anybody unnecessarily, but if he's not here in 39 days, don't vote for him. >> bill: no, not much of a chance that the majority of dave's audience will be supporting romney, but we do feel letterman's pain 'cause we're trying to get the governor on "the factor" as well. finally check five, because of all the interest in the upcoming debate this saturday evening between me and jon stewart, we put together a montage of past encounters. do you, jon stewart, have obama remorse? >> i think people feel a disappointment in that there was a sense that oh, jesus will walk on water and now you're looking like, oh, look that, it's just treading water. >> bill: you said he's let you down a couple of times when he didn't do a far left thing that you wanted. >> how far left am i? >> bill: it depends on the night. it depends on the ratings. >>
to jim lehrer. romney wants do go after obama's record. this are plenty of zingers. in the past several weeks, both campaigns have been trying to lower spectateses for their performance, mitt romney appears to have won that. the gal hop poll -- gallup poll shows most americans think president obama will win the debates which is what romney wanted people to think so he could overcome lower expectations and appear to overachieve tonight but it shows a certainant of doubt in the american public about his debate skills. he has reached a point in the last few days where he recognizes there is a industry amount riding on this and he has to show to the american people he is a capable, able, and likable would-be president who provides necessary specifics to persuade people that there is a reasonable affirmative vote they can cast in his favor. that does not exclude his ability to go after president obama and make the case with the biden remark from yesterday about the middle class being buried, or the president's remarks about redistribution going back several years, that the obama agenda will
. >> steve: then president obama in hollywood making fun of his lousy debate performance last week. >> and everybody here incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. [ laughter ] >> steve: funny line. this morning, his campaign has a new plan to turn things around and it relies on one person. insider dana perino here to explain. >> pete: and the nascar sprint cup spinning out of control. champ triggering a massive pileup at talladega. see this, believe it on "fox & friends" right now. >> steve: that was the last lap and amazingly, even though cars were flying all over the place, nobody seriously hurt. >> pete: thank god. >> gretchen: 15 cars involved. more in later. peter is in for brian today. good morning to you. some head lines now, how should the world view america? in a few hours, we'll find out what mitt romney believes. he's going to give a major foreign policy address in virginia. he is expected to criticize the obama administration's response to the benghazi, libya terrorist attack. h
for the obama camp is the second debate is not going to be the same format. it's a week from tuesday and at hobson university in new york, a town hall forethe mat and real voters asking questions in addition to the moderators and if you get too tough you might look too aggressive. what they're doing in the meantime, admitting the president didn't give his best effort perhaps, but saying it's all mitt romney's fault and he was fudging the facts. take a listen. >> it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointed in the expectations that he has for himself. but look, i think part of that was because as i said earlier, we met a new mitt romney. we met a mitt romney that wanted to walk away from the central theory of his economic plan which is his tax cut. >> now, the pushback from the romney camp it's the president's charge that the governor has a 5 trillion dollar tax cut that's starting to fall apart, as the facts play out on that one. nonetheless, democrats not giving up. governor martin o'mally of maryland on fox news sunday and charged that mitt romney's perfor
feels better than your child holding your hand. >> president obama finding himself on the defensive after mitt romney's strong debate performance next week. more bad news could come in in a few hours with jobs numbers. doug luzader is live with how this is playing out on the campaign trail. >> good morning. we are going to hear a whole range of topics today. post debate analysis continues. one of the things we will be talking about is the nation's unemployment rate. you see it charted out through the course of the president's administration. where does it head from here that is a big concern for both campaigns. we will have the numbers in about 3 hours. president obama spent more time in swing states yesterday. he visited wisconsin, he will be in virginia today. what we saw is kind of a reinvigorated candidate trying to recover from what many saw as a lackluster performance. >>> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he has been saying for the last year. that's because he knows full well that we don't want w
romney is going to answer it, ask president obama. you have this opportunity, goals. your campaign advisor last week, axelrod said you don't need a specific plan on social security. to turn it that way. one thing that is effective for romney to do, say to the american people, i will not -- if i'm fortunate enough to be elected to be your president, i will not spend four years blaming this guy. i will focus on getting solutions done. that's more effective than worrying about this or that tax cut. in january, whatever the tax economy is, if you become president, that's when you decide what the tax closures will be. >> bob: good idea what you said, to say that. but he still has to say when he said on the trail -- by the way, obama should say your own vice president candidate voted against simpson-bow-bowles. leaving that aside, can you tell us what loopholes you are going to cut that won't affect the middle class? he can't. >> eric: you know what else president obama can't do is talk about which entitlement he will cut to bring the deficit down which he promised four years ago. >> and
